Mid-Season Superlatives by John Harris

The college football season has reached its midpoint and, as always, there have been some pleasant surprises and shocking disappointments. Here are some mid-season superlatives. Best team – Alabama Still. The Crimson Tide have produced 11 non-offensive touchdowns. True freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts has been dynamic from the series he went under center. Well, okay, […]

The Best in College Football: Jackson or Peppers?

It typically happens each and every fall. After an early season game, one player is anointed as the best player in college football. The stereotypical front runner piled up 250 yards rushing and three touchdowns. He might throw four touchdowns and 350 yards. He torched an offense with 12 catches and 300 yards. Most importantly, […]

Aggies and Vols: Can They Keep History From Repeating?

Heading into the 2016 campaign, the narratives were set in stone for two SEC teams – Tennessee and Texas A&M. Tennessee is getting all this hype from the media and will fall flat on its face. Texas A&M might start well, but it won’t finish well; just look at the last two years. Yet, with […]

@PJJWatt, the Sam Houston State version of J.J. Watt?

His twitter handle is @PJJWatt, but I’m not completely sure if it’s because Sam Houston State Bearkats defensive end P.J. Hall loves him some J.J. Watt or because he’s the FCS version of J.J. Watt. Both reasons might actually be true for the 6-1, 275 lb. junior defensive end from Seguin, TX. Built out of […]

Alabama @ Ole Miss: Third Time is the Charm?

The third time is always the charm, or so we’re told. That’s not been the case for teams trying to beat a Nick Saban-coached team in the SEC. Since Saban arrived at LSU in 2000, no team has beaten his team three straight seasons. Ole Miss has that opportunity on Saturday afternoon in Oxford. The […]

Week 1 Lived Up to the Hype

College football’s week one lived up to every ounce of the hype, believe it or not. Houston’s dominating win over Oklahoma served notice that the Cougars were no one game wonder. Wisconsin upset LSU in Lambeau Field and proved that even without a ton of big names, the Badgers can compete with, and beat, the […]

John Harris Says the Fun Starts Soon!

The AP top 25 poll was released earlier this week and there’s a familiar school at the top of the charts, if you will. Alabama. This was the fifth time in history, and the third time under head coach Nick Saban, that the Crimson Tide has been anointed the best team in college football. It’s […]

John Harris at Big 12 Media Days

Earlier this week, I was up in Dallas for Big 12 Media days. It was a fast-paced, whirlwind of a day as the Oklahoma Sooners, Texas Longhorns, Kansas Jayhawks, West Virginia Mountaineers and Baylor Bears met with the assembled media on hand. Then, near the end of the proceedings on that Tuesday, it was announced […]

Predicting the 2016 Season: Week 1 Preseason camp has not begun, so making predictions may seem like folly. In the past, some of our annual Big 12 season predictions have been on the money while others have been way off base. But why should that stop us? Over the next couple of weeks we will be making predictions for every […]
